Jakarta, 18 February 2023 – MIND ID or Mining Industry Indonesia, the Holding State-Owned Enterprise for the Mining Industry, took part in the Indonesia International Motor Show (IIMS) 2024. Entering the fourth day of the event, since its opening on Thursday (16/2024), MIND ID was present in support of the GESITS Garuda Special Edition and socialization of nickel downstreaming.

At the GESITS Booth, Hall B3 Lot E16, JIExpo Kemayoran Jakarta, on Sunday (18/2/2024), PT Gesits Motor Nusantara launched the GESITS Special Edition electric motorcycle, the result of collaboration with the Indonesian National Team. This special edition combines the innovative strength of GESITS in electrical motorcycles with the spirit and pride of the Indonesian National Team.

GESITS President Director, Bernardi Djumiril, said that lovers of electric motorcycles or supporters of the Indonesian National Team who want to appear with pride in driving the GESITS electric motorcycle with design elements that reflect fighting power, speed, and spirit of the national team with its unique and trendy character, are hoped to display a new and different sense of pride.

“Since its launch at the IIMS last year, GESITS Raya G was enthusiastically welcomed by the Indonesian people, even at the export or global market. We are optimistic the special edition with its unique features will considerably heighten the emotional ties of users with their favorite motorcycle,” he said at the opening.

Currently, the GESITS Garuda Special Edition is being prepared for the first 100 buyers which can immediately be ordered at the GESITS dealers. The GESITS Garuda Special Edition combines the garuda bird design of the state symbol and the main thematic element of the Indonesian National Team campaign, which depicts grand strength, knowledge, and wisdom.

The mega mendung batik design was taken from the campaign theme of the Indonesian National Team which depicts hope, simplicity, dynamism, and openness. While the garuda bird philosophy and the mega mendung batik design are considered in line with GESITS.

Meanwhile, PSSI Chairman Erick Thohir, positively welcomes the collaboration between the two institutions, both of whom carry the name and pride of Indonesia. He believes that domestic product involvement, which supports the Indonesian National Team and national football, will strengthen and develop each other.

“I appreciate this collaboration. We at PSSI open the door widely to those who want to support the national team and national football. The presence of GESITS in football depicts more local products signifying the pride of Indonesia, increasingly trusting the national team,” said Erick.

The presence of MIND ID was made as a form of commitment of State-Owned Enterprises or BUMN, particularly Mining Industry Holding, in supporting the nationwide acceleration of new and renewable energy use in Indonesia.

According to MIND ID Director of Portfolio and Business Development, Dilo Seno Widagdo, he is ready to fully support the readiness of the electrical vehicle ecosystem in Indonesia, as an acceleration of the electrical vehicle transition in Indonesia towards environmental friendliness.

“The acceleration of the electrical vehicle transition in Indonesia is in line with MIND ID’s sustainability pathway and the Sustainable Development Goals, particularly for the climate change implementation pillar,” said Dilo.
